He was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church and Fourth Degree Member of the Knights of Columbus. Mervyn enjoyed all kinds of sporting events and his Ancient Age and 7up at 4pm sharp. I will always cherish the memories I have of going to visit him and Grandma. We didnt get to see them very often and it was very special to me when we did. Thanks Grandpa.
